I'm pretty sure on most of my chicks that I did get all females, but my Barred Rocks, I just don't know. I am new to chickens so I have no background. Any help would be appreciated.

They were 3 weeks when these pictures were taken.

Thanks!

Thanks everybody! That is exactly what my wife and I were thinking.

We'll keep watching out to see how it progresses. At this point, we were not looking for any roos. Anybody want a beautiful Barred Rock Rooster?

Not posting this to bum you out but I have raised many barred rocks as these are my moms favorite breed and she still keeps these at her house. If going by coloring I would have to agree with everyone else but it is not unusual to have a dark cockeral lighten up as he matures. They have big combs for barred rocks to be so young. This is not a breed thats comb is so large that it flops to one side as adults. I would have to guess all 3 are cockerals with the third one being a little ify. Just my opinion so please keep us posted.

Going by the blacking on the shanks, I'll go with the first 4 guesses.
I only have 8 that are about 9wks. old and some are BIG, and have red combs that are starting to fall over and wattles are red.
